From Cindy Miles, bestselling new adult author of STUPID GIRL, comes the next installment of her blockbuster Stupid in Love series - STUPID BOY.

Brax Jenkins and Olivia Beaumont are the most envied couple at Winston University- but the so-called "virginity dare," orchestrated by Brax's old fraternity, almost tore them apart.  Now, a new dare is taking shape, and it's sure to set emotions ablaze -- more than ever before. 

Winston's "It Girl" Harper Belle isn't just president of the Deltas -- she's also a master at keeping her ugly past a secret.  So, when the Kappas' dare hits closer to home for her more than anyone realizes, she devises a competition of her own as payback.  Three sorority sisters will seek out a notorious womanizer on campus and --unbeknownst to their "mark" -- secretly train him to be the perfect boyfriend.  Always up for a challenge, Harper targets the biggest player she can find: Brax's wickedly handsome foster brother Kane McCarthy.

But, Harper discovers there's much more to Kane than girls, games, and partying.  His easy smile belies the quiet, old sold reflected in his deep brown eyes.  All it takes is one night, one secret laid bare, and one kiss from Kane to shift Harper's world on its axis.  Suddenly, the girl who's always walked a straight and narrow path can't think of anything else except losing control.

 This is the first book I've read by Cindy Miles -- yes, I started  series at the second book *hangs head in shame*.  I was thrilled to realize that this book is perfectly fine as a stand alone.  While there are some areas that relate back to the first book, I was comfortable that I didn't need to read it first to understand things.  Olivia & Brax (Book 1) play a large enough part of the book that as a series lover (had I read book 1 first like I should have) I would have been satisfied with being able to continue their story.   But this story is about Kane & Harper.  So let's get down to it:

Harper : 

She is a smart level headed 'rich girl' who is president of her sorority.  She appears to have it all - a nice car, money, brains. No one knows that this is all a facade and beneath it she is nothing but secrets and lies. A broken little girl who has never recovered from her parents brutal murder years ago. 

Kane : 

He is our smoking hot bad boy who comes into town to run numbers in the frat house.  He appears to be everything Harper needs in her quest to 'fix' a bad boy. Underneath it all is the broken little boy who lived a hard life bouncing between foster homes.  While falling for Harper might make him wish he could give up his illegal activity, he has a deep secret reason for why he won't.

I loved their back stories. Beneath the surface, our characters are broken and need some serious healing. Finding each other just might be the key to beginning their healing. I was drawn into their stories and felt that with their back stories, the author built them up to be such real characters. They broke my heart over and over with what they went thru and I was constantly cheering for them to find each other and a way to heal.

I felt it was a well written book and I think you'll enjoy it. It has more depth than some romances which I enjoyed!  I'm off to read Book 1 now because I want some more of the characters I was introduced to! :)

*Edited to add - I read book 1 and LOVE it.  Check out my review here ! *
